Rodial Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contour Powder

Easy face contouring

Ever wonder how celebs get such chiseled cheekbones and jawlines? It’s all in the art of contouring, says celebrity makeup artist Gemma Wheatcroft. Apply this contouring powder to areas of your face that you want to define such as underneath the cheekbones (to strengthen bone structure), underneath the jawline (to slim the face and chin) and down the sides of the nose (to slim and define). You can find contouring tutorials on Rodial’s YouTube channel.
